English term or phrase:You are a X
X represents a noun. Is there a basic, uniform pattern sentence that I can use to say "You are a (fill in the blank)"? For example, if I wanted to say "You are a student" or "You are a merchant" would I use the same pattern for both? Thank you in advance for your help.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Thank you. Excellent and helpful explanations but Mwananchi came first and also has one 'agree'. *Excellent* CV and website. Personally, I'm intrigued by a Japanese speaking American talking with an Italian who has a degree in KiSwahili over the Internet, what an age we live in!. ;0) Thanks for the help.
